Customer Question

JA: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes it's turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Appraiser will be able to better assist you.
Customer: whats my best move? do I try and get someone to look at them? they are all carefully wrapped in plastic boxes. (except what I have opened.)
JA: Is there anything else the Appraiser should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: lets see. I am based in scotland, glasgow. there are 22 boxes and pictures as well.

Hello, my screen name is***** With a large collection I would suggest asking a local auction house to pay a visit and get through the whole lot in one sitting. I can understand if it is hard knowing what to do and one doesn't want to throw away anything of note! If you are interested in a few pieces I can have a look with photographs. I haven't dealt with these people myself but had a look online for companies which will cover this service. If you send them am email explaining your situation but you may have to have a few things itemised and photographs in advance.
